The Taieri Gorge Railway snakes its way through the Taieri Gorge

Commencing at the historic Dunedin Railway Station, the Taieri Gorge Railway is New Zealand's longest tourist railway.

Experience the beautiful Otago countryside as you sit back and relax in comfort to the clickety clack of train on track.

Regular stops allow ample time for you to take pictures of the rugged Otago landscape, and the onboard commentary provides a wonderful insight of the history of the region. Learn about the region's pioneers and of the hardships endured as they worked to open up the region's transport links.

With scenic viewing cars and on board refreshments, your comfort is ensured on this iconic New Zealand rail journey.
